Wild Beasts

WILD BEASTS

A four piece from Leeds, England, debut album ‘Limbo, Panto’ was released to critical acclaim in the UK and USA on Domino. The song titles alone, Vigil For A Fuddy Duddy, Woebegone Wanderers, Cheerio Chaps, give notice you are entering a highly original environment. One listen will leave you confounded and enchanted...

Sky Larkin

Sky Larkin

Leeds Band Sky Larkin's ascent has been rapid and invigorating. The trio's pair of pre-album singles 'Fossil, I' and 'Beeline' have swelled interest and love in the band, prior to the release of their debut album, The Golden Spike. Signed to mighty indie Wichita (bloc party, etc) 2009 looks bright.

Rolo Tomassi

Rolo Tomassi

Hassle Records newest signings, Rolo Tomassi are a fresh-faced bunch straight from the Steel City (Sheffield), playing some of the most frenetic, insane and jaw-dropping tunes around. Combining elements of punk, hardcore, post- rock, electronica, jazz and full on metal, it’s an aural assault, but of the hippest, knowing kind, and in frontwoman Eva, they posess the most natural star to emerge from the UK underground in years. Forming in 2005, the band self-released their first demo, and followed this up by a self-titled EP; their debut LP 'Hysterics' was released in September 2008 on Hassle.

Paul Marshall

Paul Marshall

Since signing to Bella Union, Paul Marshall has appeared on Guy Garvey’s radio show, filmed a session for MTV2 and toured with Bat For Lashes and Jose Gonzalez. Currently recording for his debut 2009 release, Paul will appear at SXSW whilst following up his festival appearances at Bestival, Wireless, End of the Road and Green Man in 2008.

Talk to Angels

Talk to Angels

They’re loud, impassioned, dramatic and barely legal! Run through with big ideas, these guys will give you a live set that will make your hair stand on end. Expect an A & R fest at every performance. Born at the studios that launched Kaiser Chiefs, Embrace and Pigeon Detectives, Talk To Angels return to Austin, the scene of their historic Obama election night show.

06/03/09 Greetings from pudding land!

Pretty stoked that SXSW is nearly upon us...

A bit of background info if you’ve never heard of it. SXSW is one of the largest music festivals in the United States, with more than 1,400 performers from around the world playing on over eighty stages in downtown Austin, Texas over four days in March. By day, conference registrants do business in the SXSW Trade Show in the Austin Convention Center and partake of a full agenda of informative, provocative panel discussions featuring hundreds of speakers of international stature.

Running about trying to find Yorkshire pudding recipes that Americans might understand and tekkin tha whippet out for a few last walks down t’ginnel before crossing ova tha pond.

Not just bands there’s a few Yorkshire music, film and interactive types going over too so check out www.y2tx.com

Let’s be ‘avin’ yer! It’s tahm fer a rub-a-dub-dub!

So don’t be shy come down to Latitude 30 on the Saturday. Get there early at 11.30am and make sure you pick up a copy of Independent Sounds of Yorkshire and the Humber 2009. We might even throw in some curd tart and a pickled egg!
